For Newly Diagnosed
Receiving a diagnosis of ALS is challenging and overwhelming. There is so much to know, a great deal to consider, and typically a host of questions. While no two people with ALS are alike or will experience the condition the same way, there is a great deal of collective knowledge and wisdom available from health care providers, people with ALS, family members and caregivers.
For Military Veterans
For unknown reasons, veterans who have served in the United States Armed Forces are more likely to develop ALS than people who did not serve in the military. We’re dedicated to providing resources that will improve the lives of military veterans living with ALS and funding research that will help us understand the link between military service and ALS.
For People with ALS and Others Looking to Help
We are committed to providing people ALS and their caregivers, medical professionals, and families the most comprehensive, up-to-date information on the disease alongside top-quality medical care at our ALS Association Certified Treatment Centers and Clinics.
Being the primary caregiver for a loved one with ALS can be stressful — not only are you on call 24/7, but you may have additional outside responsibilities, like working a full- or part-time job. Often, caregivers are so busy supporting their loved ones that their own physical or mental health takes second priority.
But as a caregiver, it’s important that you get the support and assistance you need so you can care for your loved one to the best of your abilities.
